Carmel is a sceney Buckhead spot when you just want a light meal—although this coastal Cali- and Yucatan-inspired restaurant has many things that blow our sails in the right direction. They have a trendy bar, seriously good cocktails like the tequila-heavy Tulum Tomorrow, and a menu stuffed with more fish varieties than the Georgia Aquarium. Appetizers like the fresh tuna tartare and the buttery lobster cannelloni are excellent menu standouts, but a few bland and underwhelming seafood entrees make us question if there are better fish in the sea.
